Elizabeth Iley, Sister of Rev. J. Iley, 1886 or Later, England



I thought I'd start my preliminary look for Elizabeth Ileys in the 1881 England Census.  I didn't expect to find quite so many Elizabeth Ileys, though.  We know that Iley is her maiden name, since there is mention of a brother Rev. J. Iley in the inscription.  Still, there are a lot of Elizabeth Ileys out there, many with brothers who have a first initial J. 



Unfortunately, we don't have any other information written on back either; only A & G Taylor's mount imprint on the back, which helps us roughly date the image to after 1886, when the the crown, plume of feathers and royal coat of arms was first used on their mounts.  This image was mostly likely taken at their studio at Newcastle on Tyne.

I don't think there are enough clues here to go on.  If you see something I've missed, I'd love to hear your ideas.
